Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool were quiet in the summer transfer window in comparison with other Premier League clubs but they could still be active in the January market
Liverpool head into the international break with a bitter taste after their impressive 25-game unbeaten was ended at West Ham.
The Reds were leapfrogged after losing 3-2 to the Irons in a pulsating game at the London Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp’s men failed to deal with the home side’s proficiency from set-pieces and conceded two goals from corners.
Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Divok Origi were in vain as the Reds slipped down to fourth in the Premier League table.
Liverpool were quiet in the summer transfer window but may feel additions are needed when the January market opens in two months as they pursue a title challenge.

Federico Chiesa was one of the standout stars of Euro 2020 as Italy broke English hearts, and he is now said to be gaining interest from Liverpool.
Calciomercato claim Liverpool had scouts at Chiesa’s game for Juventus against his former side Fiorentina this weekend.
It is noted that particular interest was given to La Viola striker Dusan Vlahovic, but it could not be ruled out that Chiesa was also being watched.
Chiesa, 24, scored a winning goal against Chelsea in the Champions League group stages and continues to impress after a scintillating summer.
But it would likely take a mammoth fee for Liverpool to add the Italian to their attacking ranks that already include Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
Dusan Vlahovic is one of Europe’s most coveted young strikers right now and Liverpool are said to be one of many potential suitors.
Despite Liverpool’s interest, Sky Italia claim Arsenal is the Premier League club putting in the most active pursuit of the youngster, who scored 21 Serie A goals for Fiorentina last term.
It has been confirmed that Vlahovic won’t sign a new contract at La Viola and it is said that the club have set a hefty asking price of €80m (£68.5m).
But the report also claims Vlahovic and his agents are not convinced about joining the Emirates and are biding their time waiting for other offers to come in.
The 21-year-old’s contract expires in 2023 and Fiorentina are expected to cash in on the forward soon to avoid a dwindling price tag.
An apparent reluctance to sign for Arsenal could prove a boost for Liverpool should they pursue a transfer.
Reds joined in Veves chase
Liverpool reportedly face fresh competition from Real Madrid in their long pursuit of Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.
According to Fichajes, the Reds and Manchester United are both targeting the Portuguese star.
With Georginio Wijnaldum not replaced in the summer and James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago all ageing, a move for Neves would make sense.
But Los Blancos are also said to be looking for a midfield signing and Liverpool are unlikely to have a free run for Neves should they step up their interest.
